How to occupy the school holidays

03 March 2022

With Half-Term looming, and Easter not far off either, you’re probably wondering about all the ways you can keep your kids entertained during the school holidays, right? We’ve compiled a list of ideas right here for you to help out!

At home activities

Not every half-term has to be filled with expensive toys and trips to theme parks. If you’re looking for something to do on the rainy days that are bound to happen during the February Half-Term then why not try some of our free activities?

From building big top tents and hosting your very own circus to doing a scavenger hunt inside the host to even encouraging your children to review their school work through fun educational activities, we’ve got over 50+ activity resources that you can do with your children?

Are you thinking about ways for them to stay active over the holidays? We’ve got you covered there too! Over lockdown, our partner Chelsea FC foundation shared an awesome video for your kids to try these football activities at home this half-term:

Day trips

Getting out and about on day trips during the half-term is as much of a treat for you as it is the kids. Day trips with your kids don’t necessarily need to be to the cinema or the bowling alley. A few places that are fun for the whole family to visit regardless of age are:

·       Theme parks – Many offer plenty of activities for kids to take part in while they’re visiting! These are a great trip for a family of thrill seekers and will tire your little tikes out, giving you a quiet evening to rest and recoup, ready for the next day of fun-filled activities.

·       Hikes or country walks – over lockdown, family walks were a quintessential part of our weeks, but with the world open again, when was the last time you and your family explored the great outdoors?

·       Museums – Engage with your children’s curriculum and expand your own knowledge by heading over to a local museum. Visiting a museum is a fantastic free trip out for the family.

Holiday camps

Multi-Activity Camps for the school holidays can give you and your children a stress-free and exciting week. If you’re a working parent you might be looking for an alternative childcare option that gets your kids out of the house and playing with other children, or you might just be looking for a way to keep their school holidays exciting with new games, activities and skills to be learnt every single day of the week.

With camps like SuperCamps, you can book by day or by week, meaning the camp works for your schedule. Got plans to visit a museum one day, but need something for the next? Book a day at SuperCamps.
